For the Love of Lace

Possibly my favorite of the bunch, Impressing the Gals Coat: Mod Cloth

Lace is one of those details that for some reason I'd distanced myself from over the past few years.  I'm gradually inviting it back into my life, and have grown quite fond of it.

Romantic Lace Necklace in Ivory: Nez Jewelry
The return to the more feminine silhouette and details is quite nice, and more than appropriate for the Valentine's season (is it a season or just a day?...I'm going to go with season).

Never Forget a Lace Top: Mod Cloth
 Over the past few months I've procured quite the supply of lace trims, and they are all quite lovely.  I'm excited to start on some new apparel projects for myself. I just have to wait for my machine replacement to find it's way to my sewing room. Until that happens, I'm gathering inspiration, creating patterns, and cutting out fabric.

Ooh, what a great roundup! I am not a particularly lacy person myself but I LOVE the lace accents on standard pieces of clothing, like the first coat. It's so much fun to be comfortable and yet feel feminine too. :)
